Comcast Center isn't in Boston! Liars.
ahhhhhhhh this is so sick
Digging: Barrow - Though I'm Alone
No FL dates fml
Time to party like it's 1999!
bullshit east coast tour
SOAD are from LA what the fuck
No GA or NC dates?
That'd be a pretty good show.
Sadly only in NA. =(((
Damn, I hate SOAD but love Tones. Might go to the Toronto date though.
Digging: Anamanaguchi - Endless Fantasy
COME TO NC!
this will almost assuredly mark my return to the PNC or the Nikon.
Digging: Mary J Blige - The Breakthrough
I am going i live in Missouri so Chicago is not as bad.
Git yer nu metal on kids
Digging: Weekend Nachos - Still
not nu metal but ok
Definitely going to the Detroit date
Digging: Living Sacrifice - Ghost Thief
Im there. No way am I missing this. I missed Deftones everytime on all their Diamond Eyes tours and I was dissapointed when SoaD didnt come close to MD last time I saw them.
Digging: Ghoul Abdul - Surface Breaks
which one isnt because theyre both more nu metal than slipknot and nobody has a problem calling slipknot nu metal
Slipknot are barely nu metal sometimes
We're only 23 posts in and we're already talking about Slipknot...
Digging: Deafheaven - Sunbather
Both bands have been great live. I'm sure this will be an awesome tour.
I was about to gasm until I read that none of these dates are anywhere near the west coast
I Was gonna travel to the US, i was unsure which state should i go.
this has made it easier.
SOAD new album nao
I'm going to the heavy Toronto show, went last year and had a blast. There are some sketchy bands this year but it's a good time either way.
Fuck, come to Ohio.
SOAD suck live at the moment. Tones should be good though.
Digging: Lamb of God - As the Palaces Burn
"August 9, 2012: Comcast Center – Boston, MA"
This is going to be the best concert year ever for me - first Radiohead on May 29, and now SOAD AND Deftones on the same night!!!
Would go for the tones and leave for the soad
Might go to the NY one depending on ticket prices. I'm not too crazy about SOAD but I really want to see Deftones; I'm still pissed that I missed their tour with DEP last year.
i'm probably gonna be driving to one of these from ohio.
Digging: Ludovico Einaudi - In a Time Lapse
Holy fuck they would skip the south completely.
Digging: Gucci Mane - World War 3, Vol. 1: Lean
im still not sure if i should leave onde the Tones start playing.
Not interested in them.
Lol sweet holmdel in nj is like 30 minutes away might just have to go
fuck yeah! Too bad I live in the middle of nowhere or i'd go and see them.
Digging: Supercell - ZIGAEXPERIENTIA
I mean I'll probably try to go but seriously fuck Allstate, hate that place
Digging: Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum
fact: if a band doesn't come to your state, your state probably sucks infinite balls.
Also, this tour would be killer if it were the year 2001.
That looks like a good tour. Shame it's only NA. Hopefully with Chi making good progress Deftones could possibly release Eros in the near future (by which I do mean within the next year or so, although it depends on Chi's recovery).
lol i can imagine the crowd at this one
Digging: Culprate - Colours
"im still not sure if i should leave onde the Tones start playing.
Not interested in them."
"Would go for the tones and leave for the soad"
or you could show some respect and stick around for BOTH bands. you paid for the show, why bitch out early? who knows, you may find yourself enjoying all of it.
2000 is stoked
oops, wrong website
might go to Heavy T.O.
Digging: Daylight Dies - A Frail Becoming
I'm so trying to go to the August 2nd date.
Digging: Down - NOLA
Who the fuck would want to show some respect to System of a Down, you twat? They're the biggest bunch of assholes I've ever seen in music.
With System of a Down being an early favorite of mine, and Deftones being a band I've consistently loved since I was fourteen, I feel as if I have to go to this...despite the massive amounts of douchebaggery I feel will be present in the crowd.
Digging: Lady Gaga - Artpop
still waiting on that deftones album
aaaaah fuck I want to go. Deftones will play Mein.
aren't the about to enter studios or already finished recording?
Im going to go and see both...because I like both
Caught them when they were in the West Coast. Fucking awesome live!
Oh my god. Why am I living in Australia
this^ (well, NZ, but same diff)
I fear for how much the tickets are gonna be for this.
Awesome lineup so far, lets hope the local supporting acts can keep up!
Digging: Marilyn Manson - Born Villain
Would go for deftones, not for soad.
i might go to the chicago date.
So fucking pumped for this. Love both bands and give no fucks. To me, SoaD was all of the good things about the "nu metal" movement, and was one of the few bands from that scene that I would call truly "original". They were great at what they did and I still appreciate them for that. Toxicity is still an album that I love to blast in my car.
And Deftones are always fucking great.
They better extended this tour past these EC dates. Never seen System live but Deftones are sooooooooo fucking good live.
Getting my tickets as soon as possible! This year is amazing for shows.
Chino and Serj duet must happen.

Everything about this ^
SOAD are so fucking boring live it's unbelievable.
My dad works for Comcast, I wonder if he could get me free tickets to the August 9th show, especially being one day after my birthday.
Too bad my dad is a dick and left my family.
Yeah no I'm sure he'll get the tickets, but they'll be for his favorite children
That's probably me. I'm the only one of his children that still speaks to him.
Well there you go
SOAD are from LA what the fuck
and deftones are from sacramento, aka 30 minutes from my house
Ive heard mixed reviews on SOAD live.
Digging: The Shadow Ring - Hold onto I.D.
They ruled a decade ago. And they still do.
Paxman apparently you've never heard of Limp Bizkit.
i will destroy you
Cool. I just remember reading reviews on Ozzfest about 4-5 years ago and people were saying they were a little sloppy. That and other times too. But maybe Ill check this out in Joyzy.
I saw them earlier this year and they had no energy whatsoever. Just stood there and played, which doesnt work for the type of music theyre playing.
Yea thats weird cuz their music is so spastic and what not. I always pictured Serge as a crazy dude but I guess hes getting old.
Of course time has slowed him down, ask Zack de la Rocha.
He was a lot more active years ago.
"who the fuck would want to pay respect to System of a Down"
people who listen to good music you fucking tasteless cunt.
also, it's nice to see the love Deftones here.
i always see a lot of hate for them in other forums.
"people who listen to good music you fucking tasteless cunt."
So you want to "pay respect" then you better bring your fucking wallet because you are gonna see one of the most expensive and horrible live acts ever! Besides the only arguable good album they ever made is toxicity.
quit while you're behind tijnmans... you clearly didn't understand my point
"the only arguable good album they ever made is toxicity."
But whatever, not about to start an argument with some you.
No west coast dates what the fuck this'd better not be the entire tour.
Awwww yeah Detroit
Iggy pop is like twice his age and 10 times as active
yeah I saw System in '06 at Ozzfest. it was cool and a good time because of sneaking into the seats and getting drunk and stuff, but yea they just stood there on these like 4x4 carpets. It sucked.
love Deftones, but I've seen them 6 times and if it's $88 and on a Wednesday I doubt I'll be there
Playing on carpets is nice
Glad to see they are touring together so that they don't ruin any good tours individually.
Digging: Buckethead - Twisterlend
Deftones - Diamond Eyes
INFUCKINGVALID Opinion. Actually how did they even let you register on this site?
I don't think deftones have ever performed Mein with SOAD live. It would be cool to see that.
Aw, so SOAD isn't good live? :/
I thoroughly enjoyed them. Ya, they don't have as much energy as they used to, but hey if you like their music, you'll get a pretty tight 2 hourish, 25+ song set (29 when I saw them).
aww come to europe !
They already did
nowhere near me so fuck this shit.
